How to never fail. 

The vast majority of people think that the opposite of success is failure. They are wrong!!

Failure only occurs if you are not learning. 

If you avoid challenges, if you don’t work hard, If you only do what comes easy and define yourself as “smart” not “hard working" and if you think your “intelligence,” although high, is fixed.

This causes you to stop learning and growing. 

This is a failure.
